Sugar Land High's Gator Banner

I went to the old Auditorium today to take a picture of old Sugar Land High School's Gator banner. Ron Miller wanted a picture for his memoir of Sugar Land High football in the early 1950s. Here's what it looks like today:

Here's what it looked like in times past:

Earliest Known Picture of Banner (1940)

Picture from 1946/7 School Year

Picture from 1947 Houston Fat Stock Show & Rodeo Parade

Picture from Fall of 1946 at Kempner Field
(Oops, I made a mistake. I got a note from Marjorie Hauerland Polasek saying she is holding the Texas Flag. Esther Vavrecka Seely is holding the banner.)

  1. I got a note from Leon Anhaiser (SLHS '57) who conferred with classmate Jackie James, & their best guess is that the banner was retired from active service at football games in 1950, which means Leon's sister Bernice was the last person to parade the flag. My thanks to Leon & Jackie for the info.
